« on: May 16, 2014, 12:46:52 PM »
Smoking whole shoulder approx. 12 lbs.  Should I separate butt and picnic
for better smoke?  Still IT 195?

I usually separate them, but most don't and like to cook them whole. If you cook it whole, and take your butts to 195°F, then cook a whole shoulder to the same temperature - measured at the thickest part.

         don't
                   inhale.
